Bob Iger teases a potential third live-action Star Wars series

Despite the end nearing for the primary saga of the long-running sci-fi film franchise Star Wars, Disney CEO Bob Iger not only announced today that the next three Star Wars films are the in-development projects from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, but that there may also be a third live-action TV series extension of the franchise in the works.

Speaking at the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit, Iger discussed the future of the franchise and how the studio is planning on filling the gaps between the final primary installment The Rise of Skywalker and the first installment of the next trilogy, which is slated for a December 2022 release.

“..In the interim, we are producing two Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, one of them is called The Mandalorian, which is being supervised by Jon Favreau, and the other one is a bit of a prequel to Rogue One. And my guess is there will probably be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+ (meaning a Star Wars series), before we release the next film.”

The franchise thus far has only seen three TV series extensions of the lore, all of which however have been animated, and the studio is currently working on two live-action small screen spin-offs. The first is The Mandalorian focusing on the lone titular gunfighter, which is set to premiere on the upcoming streaming service Disney+ on November 12.

The second series currently in the works for Disney+ is an untitled project focusing on Rogue One character Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), described as an espionage thriller, from The Americans writer Stephen Schiff, which is set to begin production sometime later this year.

Iger’s comments don’t necessarily confirm the development of a third series, but given the franchise’s popularity and potential for multiple story expansions, the mammoth studio’s inclinations to potentially produce a third iteration definitely creates hope for more adventures in a galaxy far, far away.
